ALPHA 15-55 HWR-D reduces energy usage by 50%

Grundfos Pumps Corporation, a world leader in innovative pump systems, is excited to introduce the ALPHA 15-55 HWR-D on-command pump, the most energy-efficient residential hot water recirculation system available in the United States. The system reduces homeowners’ energy consumption by up to 50%, saves thousands of gallons of water per year per household, and meets regulations such as California Energy Commission Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.

“Reducing water and energy usage has always been a core value and ambition at Grundfos,” said Kirk Vigil, vice president of sales. “We are passionate about helping people live more sustainably and meet stricter standards with the latest innovation in our ALPHA line.”

Key Features and Benefits

  • Plug and play design (115V)
  • Designed with trusted ECM technology which has been used by Grundfos for more than 17 years
  • LED light indicators for pump settings and alarms
  • Easy to use push button control settings
  • Accessories available for installation flexibility
  • All components built by Grundfos
  • Bluetooth signal range of up to 300ft (free air)
  • Wireless communication, no wiring required
  • Suitable for tankless water heater systems

The ALPHA 15-55 HWR-D system’s circulator includes plug-and-pump technology and the trusted Grundfos permanent magnet motor. When hot water is needed, a simple push-button control activates the pump via a Bluetooth signal. The pump then runs for five minutes or until the water entering the piping reaches 102°F, as indicated by an external temperature sensor.

Grundfos Showcases Innovative Solutions at WEFTEC 2018
CHICAGO — Known for its focus on innovation, efficiency and reliability, Grundfos is expanding its industry-leading solutions for the water and wastewater industry. From Sept. 29-Oct. 3, attendees at the Water Environment Federation’s 2018 Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) in New Orleans can – with the help of Grundfos’ product specialists – interact with new pumps, products and technologies at the Grundfos booth.

In booth 2629, visitors can experience the new, expanded range of Grundfos CR vertical multistage pumps like never before from the top of the Empire State Building, on a helicopter or even in a racecar – via virtual reality simulations. An interactive technology station will feature Grundfos’ new concept, Grundfos Wastewater Connect, a cloud-based remote monitoring and system optimization. Visitors can also get a hands-on look at Grundfos Service Solutions and pump selection tool Grundfos Express at the touchscreen tech station.

It isn’t just new technology that will be front and center at WEFTEC – Grundfos will display the new patent pending improved solid handling capabilities of SE/SL submersible wastewater pumps. Additionally, the new dry pit pump with enhanced durability will be on display, as will Grundfos’ high-efficiency submersible pumps and an engineered packaged pump system with expanded controls capabilities.

“At Grundfos, we are constantly anticipating industry needs and solving them” said Robert Montenegro, executive vice president of sales for Grundfos Water Utility. “What we’re presenting at WEFTEC is our full range of these solutions.”

The new Grundfos SD range of pumps offers the water quality industry a durable solution to solids handling for wastewater and stormwater collection that can be customized for a wide range of applications. This new range, along with an array of Grundfos’ renowned submersible pumps, a complete chemical dosing skid, and Peerless vertical turbines will be on display.

“We are proud to provide the answers to collecting, controlling and treating water, stormwater and wastewater,” said Montenegro. “By focusing on reliable, high-efficiency pumps and solutions, Grundfos helps municipalities to design, optimize, service and maintain their systems effectively.”

To learn more about Grundfos products, visitors to booth 2629 can view training videos and presentations along with the displays from Grundfos Water Utility solutions.

The Grundfos S-Line of energy-efficient wastewater pumps are now locally assembled at the company’s Illinois-based Water Utility Competency Center, alongside other Grundfos brands, such as Yeomans®, Morris®, Chicago® and Sewer Chewer®.

Grundfos will showcase the submersible wastewater pumps at the 2015 WEFTEC Annual Technical Exhibition, booth 1026, held September 26-30 in Chicago.

The manufacturing center located in Aurora, Illinois, is a 105,000-square-foot facility devoted exclusively to the production, servicing and distribution of pumps and other equipment for the municipal wastewater treatment market throughout North America.

“By centralizing our wastewater engineering, production, assembly and servicing resources at the Aurora Water Utility Center, we’ve been able to provide municipal customers with faster lead times and accelerated new-product development,” explains Thomas Morrrison, Vice President of Sales for the Grundfos Municipal Water & Wastewater business unit. “As a North American supplier, we engineer, manufacture, sell and service products that are unique to this market, including those that happen to be produced overseas at the present time.”

Since 2008, Grundfos has invested more than $50 million in municipal water-related activities in the United States, including acquisitions, increased production and infrastructure, information systems and product launches.

The global market leader hopes to differentiate itself in the $2 billion North American municipal water arena by building on the strength of its growing portfolio of highly engineered, energy-efficient pump systems.

SUBMERSIBLE WASTEWATER PUMPS
The Grundfos line of SL submersible wastewater pumps are designed to handle raw, unscreened sewage, effluent, large volumes of surface water and process water in municipal, utility and industrial applications. The solids-handing pump series, in motor ranges from 1.5 to 15 horsepower (HP), is available with two types of impellers:

SLV/SuperVortex Impeller: This pump type provides the free passage of solids up to four inches in diameter, making it ideal for liquids with a content of solids, fibers or gassy sludge.

SL1/S Tube Impeller: This pump type also accommodates solids up to four inches, but is designed particularly for large flows of raw sewage.

The SLV and SL1 pumps are designed for permanent submerged installation in demanding applications, such as municipal wastewater, network pumping stations, wastewater treatment plants, public buildings, housing projects and other commercial applications.

The series is designed with IE3 premium efficiency motor components, quick removable pump housing clamps, cartridges seals, quick removable plug in cord, and smooth exterior components for high-efficiency performance along with an easy-to-service pump.
